The folks at Magnus Innovations have put together a very high quality bike lighting system that I like even better than my Cygolite Metro 300, which is really saying something about the quality of the front light. Cygolite does not supply replaceable Li-ion batteries and most front bike lights don't that are rechargeable via USB. Magnus Innovations has provided not only the ability to replace the batteries should they wear out but also provides ability to swap out the battery if it should dim on your commute home. Photo at left shows the two USB rechargeable batteries with removable caps, the front light only requires one to run. What is not shown in the company's product photo is the AAA battery pack which can be used in place of one of the supplied batteries shown. The AAA battery pack requires three AAA batteries, not included in package.
For bike touring and camping this is a real boon for us as we can easily recharge a Li-ion battery with our C Crane Solar Observer Radio which is another fun addition to a Bike Camping Kit. Though I can recharge my Cygolite the same way, I have to wait for it to recharge before I have a front light that is ready to use. Not so with this kit. And if both Li-ion batteries should need charging there is of course the AAA Nimh rechargeable option.
I bought this kit for Lisa who lacks good night vision. She would routinely complain and have to reduce commuting speed significantly to feel safe at night. I had purchased the Planet Bike Beamer 5 for her a couple years ago and I was always using the swivel action on my Cygolite to help light her way. Now that she has this new bike light kit she actually commented that the strobe was so bright that it was a bit annoying. There are three modes of strobe, steady and brighter steady, which has proven to be more than sufficient bike commuting light for any situation including bike touring and camping.
I enjoy finding affordable quality products to share with Lisa as gifts and getting to write these reviews is fun too. As I continue to add appropriate gear to her "new to her" restored '89 Peugeot Canyon Express I have plenty of reviews to look forward to.
